Fur Care and Storage

“I didn’t wear my fur much this year. It doesn’t need storage or conditioning.”

We hear this occasionally, but whether worn or not, fur cold storage and conditioning extends the useful life of furs.

Rippe’s cold storage fur vault controls air quality, temperature and humidity. Therefore, cold storage prevents premature drying of the leather side of your fur.

Conditioning/cleaning/glazing by our experienced technicians minimizes oxidation of your fur (the discoloration caused by air contact). Dust, make-up, oils, perfumes and tobacco smoke are removed before they can cause permanent damage. During annual conditioning and storage inspection, Rippe’s identifies and corrects problems such as small tears in seams, missing hooks, and buttons before they lead to more costly repairs.

Also, at the low temperatures in our fur vault, moths and other insects cannot survive.

Annual fur cold storage and conditioning pays big dividends in extending the wearable life of your precious fur garments.
